I feel like this is the start of an epic rivalry where we fight from adjacent mountain peaks using our special powers. Our names have matched us from the beginning of time.
Having evolution/genetics as my degree subject is a source of almost daily irritation…
…because it’s one of those things that everyone thinks they know a lot about.
